Global Warming Solutions Act passes Senate - Vermont Daily

The Senate passed a bill creating a regulatory control of carbon emissions in Vermont. But it withdrew the $1 million funding approved by the House. If the House and Senate can reconcile their differences, will the governor approve it?

“The measure, also known as the GWSA, subjects Vermont to costly lawsuits if specific climate goals are not met. In order to avoid being sued, a Climate Council comprised of nearly two dozen unelected people could put in place restrictions or bans on the combustion of fossil fuels. The GWSA bill is similar to the one that passed the House in February by a vote of 105-37. The difference between this version and the one that passed the House is that the $1 million set aside to design a Climate Action Plan has been stripped out."
